IGN: Lost Planet 2 PC Review

Lost Planet 2 plays like it was never put in front of a member of its intended audience at some point during its development, someone who might have asked "why?": "Why can't I pause the game unless I make my game unjoinable?" "Why can't I join a co-op game in progress?" "Why can this monster kill me in two hits?" A little "why?" may have taken this game in a different, more compelling direction. If you've burned through other multiplayer or co-op options, then there might be something for you in Lost Planet 2. The single player campaign is lengthy at around 14 hours with full co-op support and the multiplayer has plenty of maps and modes. Just do yourself a favor: buy some insurance for the controller you'll invariably throw across the room at one of Lost Planet 2's seemingly endless design and interface issues.

I didn't know the PC version was delayed

tacosRcool3141d ago

It just was released later as do most PC games that are on consoles

I'll get it if it has LAN support.

It does have LAN support, the MP is pretty friggin good.

Imagine a next gen battlefront, lots of AT-ST ( star wars ) type mounts, command point nodes, lots of grenades being thrown around, lots of character customisation....some epic MF taunt animations ( hundreds of unlocks ), but the SP makes me want to club children to death...

There is no proper offline single player death match though. Only LAN, online or 'training mode'. Graphics are sweet though :S

You don't even need to enter your cd key to install the game and i'm pretty sure it doesn't ask for it for LAN ( 1 copy, install on both PC's ) there is no DRM of any kind, although it has GFWL it doesn't do anything, even the save games appear to not use GFWL. I think it's just for online play...

Dude you rock. Seriously the most helpful post I've had in a LONG while. I'll get this game to play co-op with my two younger brothers who live with me. We all have gaming capable PCs woooo! Thanks again, bubbles no doubt!

It looks amazing, but plays the same. The benchmarking alone is sort of worth a purchase. Ok, maybe not.

I wanted yo to do well so badly. I loved (ok liked) the fist game but decided not to get te 2nd after terrible reviews. If they made the gamplay more like Vanquish along with the fact that it is coop, this gae would be fucking awesome. Maybe Vanqush 2 can fulfill those requests.

there's absolutely nothing wrong with this game other than the noobery of the reviewers. i played through it completely solo and had a blast, i didn't "throw my controller".


if you don't mind a used copy it's only $14 in the gamefly store. it's just my experience that I didn't have a single complaint with the game. capcom even patched the issues with controls and whatnot that people had.

HeavenlySnipes3141d ago

I kinda liked the demo but practiclly EVERY reviewer ripped the game. I didn't think that out of 5-8 people everyone would hate the game with the same passion. Maybe I should get it and try it out. It should be like $20 or somethig now.
